The Perfect Hat For Your Style

If an outfit was a cupcake, a stylish hat would be the cherry on the top. Something that was once quite plan, slightly tasty, but still plain, has been transformed into a work of art that's almost too good to eat. Ok...that's enough cake metaphors for now, otherwise, my fridge will get a serious raiding!

The last few months have seen my hat collection quadruple in size. I have to admit that until recently, I didn't actually own any hats; but now my inner Mary Poppins has come out singing. The dated 'posh old lady at a tea party' hat-wearing stereotypes have been replaced with something far more modern and effortless.

And that's exactly how a hat should make your outfit look: Effortless.

If you're unsure of what type of hat you should be adding to your wardrobe, read on....

And ♫you can leave your hat on♫.....

The Wide Brimmed Fedora

Hat: OASAP (Get it here)

This hat's for you if.....
  •  Your wardrobe consists of ladylike classics.
  •  You have a small head.
  •  Want to show off your luscious locks when your roots aren't looking their best.

 Style it with...
  •  A classic trench coat.
  • A lush ladylike midi.
  • Polka dots and bows- if Minnie Mouse would wear it, so should you!
  • A safaris-style colour palette.
  • Buttoned shirts and retro shirt dresses.

  1. The floppy Sportsgirl black hat looks lovely on you Rachel - I'm glad your hat collection has quadrupled lately as they really suit you! I barely have any to my name at this point, though I'm sure I'll get around to changing that at some point :) Oh and thanks for the cake metaphors haha - I'm craving carrot cake now! ;)

  20. I love hats, but it is so hard to find the right size. My head has an in-between size so either they are too tight or I´ll loose them as soon as the wind starts to blow.
